Destination Details

Bamako, Mali

Bamako, the capital of Mali, is situated on the Niger, one of Africa greatest Rivers.

Mali is a country of many tribal peoples, each with their own exuberant styles of clothing and jewellery. There is nowhere better to see this colourful diversity than in the streets and markets of Bamako.

Start at Point G for a panoramic view of the city; visit the National Museum, providing an excellent introduction to the ethnic diversity of the country. 

Bamako has a large art and craft centre where sculptors, weavers, leather workers, jewellers and metal workers exhibit their wares and skills. One area of the market is devoted entirely to traditional African medicines. Here you'll find the freshly shrunken heads of birds, monkeys and crocodiles, along with lizard skins and other gruesome treatments. We will visit the big market and the recycling one.
